A9 DUALLING: KINCRAIG - WORK STEPS UP A GEAR WITH NEW TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS
The works are required to construct two new underpasses at Allt an Fhearna to the north and Dunachton Burn to the south of the scheme.
Traffic management arrangements will see the A9 reduced to one lane controlled by temporary traffic signals at a 300 metre section at 'Allt an Fhearna and a further 300 metre section at Dunachton Burn with works planned sequentially.
A 40mph speed limit under average speed camera control is already in place along the length of the project and is running well. While no significant delays are expected during this phase of the works, motorists should plan ahead for their journey.
Transport Scotland apologises for any inconvenience caused by the works and thanks road users and local communities for their patience as work continues on this major project.

NOTES TO EDITOR
The £3 billion complex and challenging programme is the most expensive transport project in Scotland’s history. It will bring safer roads for road users, local communities and reduce driver stress.
The Scottish Government is working to connect Scotland’s cities with a high quality transport system that will promote journey time reductions and improve operational effectiveness.
The A9 Dualling Perth to Inverness Programme will bring benefits to road users, communities and businesses who live along or use this important route between central Scotland and the Highlands and Islands.
Road users are encouraged to visit the Traffic Scotland website at http://trafficscotland.org/ in advance of any journey to get the latest information on the traffic management arrangements.
